Bob Marovich has spent three decades in nonprofit fund development for colleges and universities, secondary schools, museums, public broadcasters, animal welfare agencies, social service agencies, out-of-school programs, and healthcare. His skills include grantwriting, annual fund, major and planned giving, and strategic planning.

He sits on the board of Tree House Humane Society and is a board member emeritus at Blackburn College in Carlinville, Illinois.
